Description

Starting on the Kinethesis ledge, work the right facing corner to the dirty top. Down low the route takes micro gear (RP's, etc) and then has several good placements along the climb. Finish at the Nickle and Dime anchors on continue upwards along an old scary looking 5.8 route (70M required to link two pitches & be careful and KNOT YOUR ENDS!).

Alt. Start: Start below the Kinethesis Ledge and climb the corner to the large hand crack leading to the Kinethesis Ledge.

Protection

Gear: RPs to 2"
Anchor: Shares Nickle and Dime's Bolt Anchors.

Scrubbed the crack out and got rid of all the loose rock on the ledges yesterday, this is actually a quality route with 2 very interesting big moves over tiny gear. If you have a 70 you can do the little crack below and also the upper pitch of N&D for a huge 60+ M pitch. Jul 10, 2017

That is a good crack, just a month and a half ago I spent some time opening the gear placements back up with a nut tool. The crack fills in with dirt and vegetation pretty fast. Jul 13, 2017

the hand crack start is actually kind of miserable for the grade - flared and hard to get any good jams w/ very blank face. Aug 19, 2017
